IRIS Airtight Storage Container.  Translucent body means you can see what’s inside.  Wheels for easy transport.  BPA free.  Made in the USA.


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Airtight pet food container is the ideal solution for storing dog or cat food, other pet food, and more
  • Pet food bins have airtight seals and snap lock latches to keep out moisture and pests for secure dry food storage
  • Slim plastic container design fits into tight spaces

  • Dimensions: 18.13″L x 10.63″W x 23.78″H

As of this posting, the product page for this container is listing it at 47 quarts.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is about 5 lbs per gallon.  47 quarts is 11.75 gallons.  At an estimate of 5 lbs per gallon, you could store about 58,74 lbs in this container.  That’s a rough estimate, actual capacity will vary.

  • What distillation is and common misconceptions about the process
  • Legalities surrounding distilling alcohol at home
  • Carbon filtering—when it’s necessary, when to filter, and why you filter
  • Flavoring and aging your spirits
  • Keeping safety first when working with flammable materials, such as ethanol
    Yeast styles and nutritional requirements
  • Different methods of distillation and equipment
    Post-distillation process

Author Rick Morris, who has been selling distillation equipment for over 25 years, even includes his own recipes for different types of spirits and drink recipes. By learning not just how to distill, but also what is happening at each step and why it is needed, readers will be armed with the information they need to experiment with their own spirits and concoct their own recipes.
